Oregon’s School Psychology Leaders

The following individuals have stepped forward to donate their time and effort to improve the profession of school psychology by taking leadership roles. Some are elected; some are appointed. Without them, the Oregon School Psychologists’ Association could not exist. Please give them the benefit of your opinions and ideas for improving OSPA services, as well as your appreciation. If you have 5, 15, or 50 minutes to contribute – let one or more of these leaders know. Many hands make the work lighter!

Your 2017-18 OSPA Board

Our Student Representatives

Each year, student representatives from local universities are chosen or elected to serve as a part of the leadership of OSPA.  This is a great opportunity for students to network for jobs, meet school psychologists from around the state, and learn more about the field of school psychology in the state of Oregon.  Our student representatives provide us with very helpful information about their training programs and give us a student perspective on being a member of OSPA.
